The great thing about being human is that humans are not perfect. I find myself often forgetting to do things that most people seem to always remember to do, like brush their hair. I’ve gone to work many times with rowdy hair, unbrushed teeth, no makeup, and in just jeans and a t-shirt. Does this make me unprofessional? No, this makes me human. I’ve never really liked routine so getting up in the morning is not my forte.
I used to think there was something wrong with me because all of my peers in high school would get up at 5 in the morning to do their hair and makeup. I myself love my sleep. I go to bed at 10 and get up at 6 (more like every 10 minutes to turn off my alarm until 30 minutes before I had to catch the bus). I was a girl that didn’t wash her hair every time I showered – which is actually a good thing to do according to hair stylists. I feel comfortable not wearing makeup. It might be because that my mom wouldn’t let me wear makeup while I lived with her and it helps that I don’t have a bad face, although I still struggle with adult acne. I don’t feel bad that I’m human.
There are many of us that feel “ashamed” that we don’t follow the status quo, the world of perfectionism. If we start to realized that those who are in the world of perfectionism also struggle with needing control then we can see them more in a HUMAN light. What I mean is even though there are people that seem to have it all together – they are still human and still have their own struggles. Us trying to compare ourselves to others only perpetuates the problem that “I’m not good enough”.
Love yourself and all your human flaws. If you forget to brush your hair, throw it up in a pony tail and own the day. If you forget to brush your teeth, get a napkin and do a scrub and pop a mint (I keep a travelers size bottle of mouth wash just in case). And if you just don’t give a flying leap what you look like – good for you! You are two steps forward today on raising your vibration and rocking the day.
